summertime is...

This weekend was everything summertime should be...   late nights | bare feet | cold beers in koozies  | heart-shaped sunglasses | the smell of coppertone | wide brim hats | toes in the water | floating down the river | letting my hair dry in the sun | windows down | bikinis on |
sweet sweet summer…

What a wonderfully perfect start to the New Year. We'll be New Year newlyweds! 
It was quite the challenge to find a date (see here for proof). It was a big source of stres…

my visit to the other side of the country - part 2

I was really looking forward to last Saturday out in Washington because there was an Ortho department picnic. This was planned to give the three new guys and gal a chance to meet everyone they'd be working with and vice-versa. We really lucked out that it was taking place the same weekend I was…

first trip to my future home

I have been getting back into the groove of things and catching up on sleep and work because I was out of the office, out of town and out of the East Coast this past weekend. Yep, that's right, I went to visit T.J. and I finally got to see where we're going to be living for the next few yea…

On Saturday we went to the farmer's market, ou…

I volunteered to design the invite and all the little personal stationary and decorative touches for the sho…

the best year yet

And 26 is off to a great start.
At work on Friday I was overwhelmed by cookies and ice cream cake and balloons from my coworkers.
I got to have dinner with my sweet roommates on Friday night. Chips and salsa, mojitos, girl talk. What more could you ask for on your birthday?
On my actual day I spent…

over the phone

T.J. is in Tacoma.
And so it begins. His long work days, a three hour time difference, figuring out a good time to talk in the evenings, booking further, longer, flights.

I can do this.
We've been doing this for the past year and we can do it for however longer.
We can plan a wedding and figure…
